Energy costs are a vital concern. Though alternative energy options continue to grow, most involve higher up-front costs. New insulation options for conservation are a more affordable way to lower energy costs. Energy conservation also reduces demand for energy, and also holds down prices.
Unique Applegate Insulation®
High-density, interlaced natural fibers which result in an effective R-value.
Engineers found that Applegate Cellulose Insulation® reduced air infiltration by 38% versus fiberglass and needed 26% less energy to heat. A 9- hour overnight heat loss test revealed that the cellulose was 7 degrees warmer than fiberglass.
Applegate Insulation® is sprayed or blown into the attic, creating a tight heat barrier. Fiberglass bundles, on the other hand, must be cut and pieced together, leaving gaps, voids and areas of compression.
